Lower Main street has become a dis
grace to our town as there are brawls
there every night, which endanges the
lives of those who have to go into that
part of town. Our police force have
their hands full every night and do their
duty well but the force is too small to
keep order and something should be
done to prevent honest men from being
.robbed in the early evening.
A Hastings boy named Riordan. a
few nights ago, wanted a ride. Not
having a horse, he appropriated one be
longing to his father, a harness belong
ing to G. W. Lowery and a buggy be
longing to II. II. Dean to his own
disposal and started out on a lark. The
horse didn't like the combination and
distributed the buggy and the boy along
the streets. As is usually the case the
boy was not hurt but he is in trouble.
The boys in the office at the Store
house, where Will II. Miller is employed,

An Excellent Company.
One of the best comedy companies
that ever visited Plattsmouth is that of
Marie Prescott who have the past two
nights played before the plattsmouth
people. Last night they played "The
Merchant at Venice" with an after piece,
"Katherina and Petruchio" or "The tam
ing of the Shrew."
The stars of the play, Marie Prescott
and R. D. McLean brought loud and
continued applause from the audience,
and the play was excellent. To-night is
the company's last night. They will
present Shakespeare's great comedy,
"Twelfth Night." If you deoire to see
an excellent play given by a competent
company do not fail to attend.

How to Boom Your Town.
The following truthful paragraph we
clip from the Johnson county Journal,
We think it will fit some of our citizens
very nicely and hope they will be profit
ed by it. "Every one can be a boomer;
Keen vour money at home, l'atromze
those who patronize you. Spend your
money among your home institutions,
where you stand a good chance to get it
back. Every dollar you spend witli a
stranirer is irone forever. Every dollar
vou snend with a home man finds' its
way back to your own pocket. A dollar
spent in an other town goes to help build
up that town. A dollar spent here goes
to build up our own town. Figure the
thing down fine and you loose money by
buying away from home evenMf you get
the article for one-half what it would
cost at home." Remember this and act

A Representative Ear.
Mr. J, II. Paden has laid on our desk
a sample ear of corn from a farm belong
ing to Mrs. Paden, adjoining Geneva.
The car, seven and one-half inches around
and thirteen inches loug, is a splendid,
old fashioned representative of what
Nebraska can do. The field will yield
over fifty bushela per acre. Hastings
The above mentioned place Geneva
is in Fillmore county in the western cen
tral part of the state, and it is quite ev:
dent that Fillmore county soil ia about
equal to Cass county soil, although there
is some corn on exhibition at the fair
that will lead the Geneva ear.
Fillmore ia also a competor with Cass
on the fruit question, although Cass has
always borne the reputation of being the
best county in the state, and we believe
she is. Fillmore took first prize at the
Omaha fair on the best and largest col
lection of fruit.
Nebraska as a corn state ranks first of
any in the union, and Mr. Eigenbroadt,
of Chautaoua countv. N. Y.. while in
conversation with a Herald reporter the
other day remarked that such crops and
farms aa are common to Nebraska are
never seen in his state.
A Juror Robbed.
The pantaloon explorer got around to
